Millions of Americans have fallen behind on rent amid economic turmoil caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and many could face evictions.

One startup is treating the dire situation as a moneymaking opportunity for gig workers.
  • A new startup is recruiting gig workers to help landlords evict people who can`t afford to pay rent during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Civvl, which Motherboard described as "Uber, but for evicting people," has posted job listings across the US that encourage gig workers to join the app and work as eviction crew members.

  • Civvl notes that landlords are looking to hire workers to evict tenants who can`t afford to pay rent, advertising the gig as the "FASTEST GROWING MONEY MAKING GIG DUE TO COVID-19."

  • The CDC is imposing a moratorium on all evictions across the US, but Civvl`s terms appear to pass on responsibility to landlords to ensure that evictions carried out through the startup are legal.
